Drawing Lab for Mixed-Media Artists: 52 Creative Exercises to Make Drawing Fun (Lab Series)
In the first lab you are supposed to draw 30 cats sitting in bed. You can do it on a pillow or use your non-dominant hand. Its a great exercise because none of these are so called perfect cats. Here are some of my funny cats. Then we are to choose one we like and paint it. The only one I liked was in the upper right corner.
So here is my little blue cat, rendered in watercolor. He was actually sort of fun to do. I like painting him better than drawing all those cats. I think working with this book will really help conquer those art fears of not being right perfect or correct. I have been wanting to try some whimsical stuff so here is my chance. Maybe this little blue cat now needs a series of adventures.
The Blue Angels are in town and they have been practicing over my head or roof I should say. Maybe that is why the cat is blue. Those blue planes are quite exciting to see so close. Flynn doesn't like them very much though, he keeps chasing them all over the yard. Dogs are funny sometimes, he will chase an airplane but he is afraid of the vacuum cleaner.
